Mikkeller: Black BA Bourbon 43.0% [375ml]
They say "The Mikkeller Spirits Black series is the sine qua non of Mikkeller Spirits. Harnessing the skills of our collaborators Braunstein Distillery we decided to distil one of our flagship beers: the Mikkeller Black. This 17,5% ABV imperial stout showed great potential for distilling, a great beer turned into a great spirit. Using a copper still we distil one small batch at a time. We select a small special cask for each batch to age on. These batches are exclusive and very limited editions. The selected casks give the different batches uniqueness in taste, aroma and colour."
We say "The barrels used add vanilla and toffee notes common in bourbon to this whiskey, which has a fruity clean base, with a crisp taste coming from the dark malts. The gentle aging in the barrels allows the original character of the Black spirit to shine through. A very special whiskey which is beautiful enjoyed by itself or mixed as part of a cocktail."
